Summary

Summary

Robert Louis Stevenson's story is adapted for modern theater in 2001's Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical starring David Hasselhoff in the leading dual role. This video is a recording of an actual performance at Plymouth Theatre on Broadway, shot with several high definition video cameras from various angles. Hasselhoff portrays both the genius Dr. Jekyll and the notorious Mr. Hyde from the original Stevenson tale, as two sides of a single human psyche playing out encounters with goodness versus evil in the midst of love and mental confusion. This adaptation incorporates a pop twist on the musical numbers, where Hasselhoff is afforded the opportunity to incorporate his experience as a television actor with his vocal recording background. ~ Sarah Sloboda, Rovi
